News

After reading a number of out-of-town newspapers for a week, I caught up on a week's worth of the Intelligencer earlier today.

Are our local "newspapers" really in favor of "affordable electricity"?

You may have noticed that the local "newspapers" have started using "war on affordable electricity" instead of "war on coal."

Morrisey watch 9

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has decided not to run for governor. A change of mind? As this blog has noted at least 8 times previously, he had been running for something for over a year now. And even up until last week, as the Charleston Gazette notes, he acted like a candidate:
